    The latter sounds quite sporty… Budget racer? There’s still a lot of life left in the little coupé.

  2. The two liter petrol sounds promising.

    And, not available in the USA, right?

    Despite the higher torque, why does the the diesel accelerate so much less quickly to 60mph? Is it a question of engine weight?

    Not going to lie, when I saw this post and the teaser caption on the home page my heart skipped a beat cause I thought you were going to say they were adding a 4 door sedan model! I guess I will still have to wait for my modern day e30 sedan
